Oracle and the SD-WAN Marketplace
According to research by Vertical Systems Group Research, in 2018, the managed SDN market services generated $282 million in revenue. The research is based on the WAN access connections installed and through the U.S. customer sites. Many companies have involved themselves in providing SD-WAN services. The SD-WAN market is proliferating with Cisco and VMware as the key players as both the companies have been leading the marketplace.
Talari Networks is one such company that tops first ten providers of SD-WAN technology. Talari Networks has involved in developing Failsafe that provides secure site-to-site cloud connectivity and site-to-cloud connectivity. It also has the application access over any IP.
During the first half of 2018, the revenues of Talari were about $5.4 million, which made the company to be the No. 7 player in the market. Oracle complements Talari Networks in many instances. For example, Talari recently added high availability and quality of experience capabilities to the Oracle communication Session Border (SBC). Meanwhile, Oracle has also been seeking opportunities to get into the cloud services.
Though Oracle has been growing by revenue, it did not disclose Iaas-related revenues like Microsoft and Amazon did. Oracle finds the complementary approach of Talari Networks as a key factor to enter into the cloud service. Oracle in a letter to its customers and partners said that along with Talari Networks, the company would accelerate digital information and cloud adoption. Also, they would provide these services to companies with complete reliability and real-time communicative multiprotocol performance. Companies are moving into SD-WAN to benefit in multiple ways. IT agility, flexibility, low-costs, and improved performance are some of them.
In the future, the combination of Oracle and Talari Networks may create a huge impact on buying, selling, assessing, and deployments. Talari together with Oracle is estimated to serve around 500 enterprise customers in 40 countries involving various sectors including financial, insurance, and retail marketing.
